I’m breaking from the traditional ‘Dirt’ posts that have dominated the last couple of years to pop my chest out and brag a little about the ‘Kids’ part of DirtNKids, my kids.
Today we are celebrating a first for our four children: admittance into a 4-yr university. A fine student all through his school career, our oldest ranks 13th in his class of +850 with a 4.6 mid-term GPA, among other honors. We figured with those stats, he shouldn’t have too much difficulty getting into college, and UH Cullen College of Engineering was his top choice.
In typical Mom-knows-no-shame and well within my bragging rights, I wanted to share this rather old video of three Kids performing before their spring recitals. They had worked out Flying in a Blue Dream by Joe Satriani just weeks before and were given permission to play it impromptu as parents, students, and audience members were getting seated for the hour-long showtime; the youngest, a violinist, didn’t want to collaborate. Mr. Collegiate, a fine pianist in his own right, is playing electric guitar this time.
To be sure, they are all quite into their music and art talents.

Woohoo!!! Y’all stay warm. See you again on the Dirt side.
